by this technique you have established a conundrum. you want the pk to
be taken. the keeper keeps dancing around.
when you tell the keeper who the kicker is, also tell the keeper "I'm
going to walk to the <where ever your preferred spot is >, be ready!
this gives the keeper enuf time to prepare himself. when you get to
your preferred spot, and all is in order, blow your whistle.
otherwise you let the keeper control the pk. this is not good.
